I should note that the template will immediately show the "new" comment in the text and the New category at the bottom of the page, before you even edit the page. However the category New will not be generated in the Category namespace until you edit the page and save it. Of course if you edit the page and add the |revision=yes parameter then the appropriate "revision" text and category will be added instead.

OK. I will work on one and set up some demo pages in the Wiki Help namespace

Closing the loop on this post. I created the Subpage tutorial and it is discussed in this post.

Thank you for assembling this template.

Is there a way to create a contacttype of "thread" to display the text "post a message in this thread"? Both MD and DC have threads devoted to the Wiki.

When I created it I didn't think the distinction was that important. Do you think readers of the text will not understand a link to a forum might or might not lead to a specific thread?


Hmmm..yeah, I'm probably being too picky. :oops:

Sorry about that. I withdraw my suggestion.

Optional URL parameter for forum or private message. Do not include the descriptor field of the URL, meaning only send the valid URL text without the extra space followed by a description of the URL. Requires |contacttype= to alter message appropriate for forum or individual user.

Should I add a note that the forum can be either a forum section or a specific thread in the forum?


I don't think it is necessary.
